“Very Smart Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

30+ different Dutch beers on draught, slowish service only one person on duty in a busy period, but I will forgive them as it's a excellent place to drink.
Great "Bok" beer could have spent all day there!

“Really nice place to grab a beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Incredible selection of Dutch beers (microbrews)and Jenever. I started with a barley wine and then moved on to some bottle from Brouwerij de Molen . The "Hot & Spicy" was one of the best beers I've ever had... Like a chocolate stout with a little CAYENNE PEPPAH! Closed out with a couple of shots of Jenever. Bartenders were pleasant and helpful and an upbeat crowd. If you want to get your Dutch beer on, this is the place to go. Warning though, not really a restaurant. They have sausages and cheese to nosh on, but you should eat before coming here.

“Great for beer lovers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Would recommend that beer lovers pop in and visit and wile away a few hours here. Not sure what you want ? Just ask the staff, they're great - you can have a little try before you buy too, which is great! They have a few dutch cheeses to go with the beer too!
NOTE - go for beer. Did see a few folk get into a huff over lack of alco pops!

“They love Americans here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

If you want a taste of the Dutch this is the place!
Great beers, and very welcoming to Americans!
Very knowledgable staff on beers and Dutch sensibilities.
Very nice part of town close to many attractions, great stop for refreshment after long walk or tour.
All beers are Dutch and can be matched with great cheeses and small dishes.
